Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh noted that redshirt junior WR Jehu Chesson (leg) will not be a full participant in spring practice.
Chesson's currently working his way back from a leg injury suffered against Florida in the Citrus Bowl. Predictably, no further information's been ladled out beyond the fact that his leg was, indeed, hurt. The 6-foot-3, 183-pound redshirt junior was spotted on crutches during Harbaugh's National Signing Day party. While he was quiet at times during the 2015 campaign, Chesson had his moments and finished out with 45 catches for 646 yards and eight touchdowns. Feb 19 - 7:35 PM

Michigan redshirt junior WR Jehu Chesson caught five passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in the school's 41-7 win over Florida.

Chesson beat Vernon Hargreaves III on his 31 yard touchdown catch, easily getting behind the highly though of corner. Michigan's roster should only get more talented moving forward, and Chesson could be a pivotal piece of the puzzle in 2016.

Chesson was voted MVP by his teammates after he hauled in 45 passes for 646 yards and eight touchdowns.

Michigan senior WR Jehu Chesson caught eight passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-13 loss to Ohio State.

It took Chesson most of the season to develop chemistry with QB Jake Rudock. Now that he has it, he probably wishes the season would drag on for a few more months. Entering the Indiana contest three weeks ago, the 6-foot-3, 183-pound senior's season-high yardage total was 58 against Michigan State. Over the past three games, Chesson has caught 22 balls for 387 yards and five touchdowns. He's a player to target in DFS during bowl season.

Michigan senior WR Jehu Chesson caught 10 passes for 207 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 48-41 2OT win over Indiana.

Egads. Chesson caught three of his four touchdowns in the first half, but it was the final one that proved most memorable. With time about to expire and Michigan trailing 34-27, graduate QB Jake Rudock fired the ball in to Chesson from five-yards out. He wrapped up the reception between several defenders and after the made extra point, the game progressed to overtime. Saturday's effort was, by far, his best of the season. The 6-foot-3, 183-pound senior's previous high-yardage day had been 58 against Michigan State. While Saturday's 207 yards were almost certainly an anomaly, all seven of his touchdown catches have come in his last three games. Rolling the dice on him at a reasonable DFS price in the hopes of cashing a touchdown or two isn't the most outlandish thing a human being could do.

Michigan freshman WRs Jehu Chesson and Amara Darboh are standing out in bowl practices.

One underrated aspect of accepting a bowl invitation is that it allows for the team to participate in over a dozen more practices, and these two freshmen are taking advantage. Chesson is redshirting this season while Darboh has been relegated to special teams duty. Both may see more playing time next season due to the graduation of Roy Roundtree and Devin Gardner's full-time switch to quarterback.
